Eight weeks of 10K training are in the books! This spring has been an incredible time of falling back in love with running post-injury. My BRF, Nadja, and I have been training for our 10K for 8 weeks now, and I'm loving every minute of it (even the hot and humid ones!). After my injury… Continue reading Summer Running Fun
Thank you for everyone who supported me this past fall! Together we raised $605 to support A.D.O.P.T. Pet Shelter in Naperville, IL. I was totally blown away by everyone's willingness to support this venture - so to all of you, a million thanks! And to top it off, I completed my first marathon. Waaahooo! The… Continue reading Operation First Marathon, Complete!
Spring training is officially underway! Hubs and I are running the Chicago Spring Half Marathon in May, and we've logged a full week of training thus far. I always enjoy our runs together. It's the perfect time to touch base, encourage each other (especially when my legs feel like lead!) and share the feeling of… Continue reading Spring Training…Commence!
Miss Millie and I would like to wish you a Happy Halloween!!

I still don't like peas, and I'm not sure if that will ever change, but I've recently discovered a new way to eat veggies - and that's to drink them! Hubs and I invested in an Omega juicer this summer, and gosh do I… Continue reading Drink Your Veggies

Hubs and I have spent a lot of money (and time!) at Petco purchasing the best treats for Millie...and I felt like there had to be a better solution to our treats need. We look for high-quality ingredients in treats that are… Continue reading Homemade Puppy Treats
Is it just me, or did April fly by? I didn't run as much as I'd planned this month, but I'm still happy with my overall performance. I'd originally had a half marathon planned for May 18th and another in early June, but I'm going to be traveling from mid-May to mid-June for work, which derailed… Continue reading April Flashback
Do you run with your dog? If so, check out Runner's World 25 Instagram photos of Dogs on the Run. Here are my favorites: Yesterday Hubs and I celebrated my birthday (the big 25!), and we spent the afternoon hanging out at the park with Millie Pup. We tried taking a "family selfie," and our first… Continue reading Dogs on the Run
I have exciting news to share...the pup portion of "Run with Pup" is here! Last Saturday Hubs and I drove out to PA to Endless Mountain Labs. There we picked up our Millie girl. She is very sweet, and is learning quickly. One week in and she's almost house trained and is close to sleeping… Continue reading Millie is Here!
